Abstract: Abstract:The design and preparation of hybrid mixed matrix membranes based on PVC (polyvinylchloride) were studied for the separation of toluene-n-heptane mixtures by pervaporation. PVC was chosen as the starting organic matrix because it is an inexpensive polymer, possessing a very high selectivity for aromatics. This property is due to the polar macromolecular structure that can induce a specific transfer of aromatic species compared with aliphatic species. To improve the performance of the PVC glassy struc…
